US Urges India and Pakistan to Seek Dialogue Amid Targeted Killing Accusations

The United States commented on Monday regarding reports accusing India of conducting targeted killings in Pakistan, emphasizing the need for dialogue between the two nations to resolve the matter.

India had recently refuted these allegations, labeling them as “false and malicious anti-India propaganda” following a report in the UK newspaper, The Guardian, citing Pakistani evidence.

US State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller stated that while the US will not intervene in the issue, it encourages both India and Pakistan to refrain from escalation and seek resolution through dialogue.

The Guardian’s report suggested that India’s intelligence agency RAW had executed up to 20 targeted assassinations since the Pulwama attack in 2019. It alleged that India has implemented a policy of targeting individuals deemed hostile to its interests.

The report also implicated sleeper cells of the Indian intelligence in the UAE in these killings, drawing parallels to the tactics of other intelligence agencies like Israel’s Mossad and Russia’s KGB.

India vehemently denied the charges, citing Foreign Minister S Jaishankar’s statement that targeted killings abroad were not part of the Indian government’s policy. The Foreign Ministry’s rejection of the accusations was highlighted in The Guardian’s report.
